    Hi All, I seem to remember that some engine stands don’t fit air cooled motors. Can anyone recommend a stand they have used for a type 4 engine. Will any engine stand do?? TIA

    You can use any engine stand (within reason) - but the mount I believe needs to be a VW style yoke.
    It will allow you to support the engine half, once the case has been split.
    I wasn't able to find them in Australia easily - they do come up 2nd hand often.
    I bought one via the Samba - I think it ended up being about $300 incl shipping.

    Thanks Guys, also found this very useful site called Ratwell.com he has a whole article on engine supports with photos.

    May help others in the same dilemma. Going to check with Rod to see if he has a Mobile version and cost of shipping to WA.

    Wish I could have bought one of those 2 arm ones... so much cheaper than the 5 arm one I got!
